Need some help with installing Ubuntu.

Been trying to install Ubuntu on my notebook. Have tried 4 times and each time it stops the installation when it is "retrieving files", usually around file 18 of 38. Any assistance will be much appreciated. I'm a newbie, so please no high-tech answers that will be greek to me.

Burning an ISO

1) What is the MAKE and MODEL of your notebook? How much RAM (Memory) have you got?

2) How are you trying to install? What media are you trying to install from? Don't use a CD-RW!

3) Have you used the same ISO four times? If it has an error it will keep making it.
